Designer, Creator, Human. 

Hi I’m Derek — a radiantly passionate designer bridging aesthetics with functionalist approaches to achieve empathetic solutions for modern human problems.

I’m a fourth year Global Business + Digital Arts student at the University of Waterloo immersed in graphic design, industrial design and creative direction.

With a focus in fine and multi-media digital arts, I strive to create visual experiences centered around self-expression and the fundamental essence of the human experience. I love to help others and design is my language for connecting with them. Currently, my main design language crosses functionalism, aesthetics and intimacy to provide users with seamlessly intuitive solutions. My ambition is to establish thoughtful connections between users and my creations. 

Let’s create something amazing.
